Principal Investigator:Ootes, Luke Licenced Year(s):
The goal of this research is to study select bedrock exposures of sedimentary rocks and determine their age and provenance (source). This is completed by walking and looking/documenting rocks (mapping) and in some places collecting fist-sized rocks samples with a small hammer. These samples are processed at the University of Alberta.
To test the hypothesis, a combination of field observations b...

The goal of this project is to increase the geoscience knowledge of the NWT, particularly around Norman Wells and Tulita, and in the surrounding mountains, to provide public geoscience information to all stakeholders through the production of bedrock geology maps and related reports on petroleum potential, and to encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will lead to social...

The primary objective of this research involves testing a strategy for using Inuvialuit Knowledge to monitor environmental conditions in the Mackenzie Delta Region (MDR) of the Northwest Territories. Methods will include participatory photo mapping, community mapping, and photo elicitation interviews to monitor, record, document and communicate Inuvialuit observations of environmental change in th...
Principal Investigator:Miles, Warner F. Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities, and provide...
Principal Investigator:Rainbird, Robert H Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...

This licence is issued for the scientific research application #441.
The objective of this field work is to measure and map the Lonely Bay Formation and Chinchaga Formation in outcrop. This information will then be used to interpret vertical and lateral relationships between the two formations seen in drill cores.
The research will consist of examining 6 outcrops (4 road accessible and 2 ac...

The objectives of the Sekwi Mountain project are: (1) Provide an updated geological database for a segment of the Mackenzie Mountains; (2) Assess the mineral potential of the area; (3) Assess the hydrocarbon (oil and gas, coal) potential of the area; (4) Provide tectonic model for the assembly of the Mackenzie Mountains; (5) Produce an user-friendly guide to the geology of the Canol Heritage Trail...
Principal Investigator:Zantvoort, Willem Licenced Year(s):
Peel Plateau and Plain, an area with hydrocarbon potential spanning the NWT-Yukon border, lies southwest of the Mackenzie River, north of the Mackenzie Mountains, and east of the Richardson Mountains. A primary objective of this project is to expand geoscience knowledge to aid in informed land use decisions, as well as stimulate petroleum exploration, industry investment, and economic development ...
Principal Investigator:Jackson, Valerie A Licenced Year(s):
The project is aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the bedrock geology and mineral potential of the South Bear area.
Southern Bear project area is in the Bear Structural Province of the Northwest Territories centred approximately 240 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse and limited to 1:250 000 regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC...

The objective of the proposed survey is to obtain a high resolution, highly accurate, three-dimensional topographic image of the study area. The data collected from the survey will be used to assist in planning for construction of winter and all-season roads and airstrip for the proposed Parsons Lake natural gas field development program. Terra Remote Sensing Inc. has been contracted to perform th...
